PAIGE WERNLI, Graduate Student
University of Hawai'i - Mānoa , Hawai'i Institute of Marine Biology
Paige’s capstone research project for her undergraduate degree focused on Oceanic Whitetip shark movements around Fish Aggregating Devices off the Kona coast of Hawaiʻi island. The project was completed thanks to Melanie and the fishermen of the Hawaii Community Shark Tagging Program, who provided her with acoustic data from the Kona FAD array. Paige will be attending graduate school at the University of Hawaiʻi in the fall and looks forward to aiding the efforts of the Community Shark Tagging Program.
